Cloud Computing, Systems Architect & Quality Author
George Georgalis is an IT expert. In 1998, he transitioned a medical discovery service (founded 4 years earlier for library research) to a system administration consultancy for San Diego business. Relocating in 2001, he consulted 5 years for New York City and New Jersey companies. In 2004, Metrum Research Group, a Connecticut based pharmacometric research organization, contracted him to engineer a PK/PD modeling and simulation grid, for pharma trial research. Two years later, Mr. Georgalis joined MetrumRG as Information Systems Scientist. In 2008, he was appointed Faculty of Science Researcher, Department of Pharmacology, Leiden University (Netherlands), for LACDR and the Dutch Top Institute Pharma Consortium, to develop knowledgebase and HPC facilities. After returning to the states, he was contracted to analyze DNS at a global financial firm, developed research computing at 23andMe and bootstrapped automated deployment at Cisco/WebEx. In my sights, I have enterprise architecture, systems design, data modeling, grid metrics and infographics. When I'm not on the VPN, I've been playing music, shooting archery and looking for more beehive sites---cannot wait for spring!
